As the Founder of the Buffalo Dachshund Club, and the owner of two dachshund (who were featured in a past Freed Maxick ad campaign seen below!) helping local pets find their forever homes is important to me, and part of my community involvement.

Buffalo Dachshund Club

Freed Maxick encourages employees to explore their interests outside of the office, and I have a great work/life balance to run my club, get involved in local pet-centric events and stay connected to my community. I love that Freed Maxick cares about the Buffalo, Rochester and Western New York community and helps support many nonprofit organizations.

I thought I’d share Lollypop Farm’s “Pet of the Week!” Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, has been helping animals and people since 1873. Support from the community enables 90 staff members and more than 800 volunteers to care for over 11,000 homeless animals each year and makes possible a variety of programs to address issues that contribute to pet overpopulation and the surrender of unwanted animals.

I am happy to help support their mission and hope to post more of their pets of the week to help them find their forever homes! Here’s this week’s “Pet of the Week” Mouse!

Mouse #18880242
Meet Mouse!  She’s a 5 month old Shetland Sheepdog mix who’s sensitive and shy at first.  She needs time to get to know you but, once she does, she’s playful and energetic and a lot of fun.  Mouse will do best in a home where any children are older.  She would also benefit from the company of an older, more confident dog.  Training will be very helpful in building her confidence and her bond with you.  If you’d like to meet Mouse, please contact our animal behavior specialist, Allysa Boyea, at or 585-273-1330 X 148.
